Anne Davin is an incredible woman! She spent several years living on a Native American reservation in New Mexico, and her later work with Southeast Asian Indo-Chinese refugees inspired her exploration of the intersection of psyche, culture, and the marginalized voice of the feminine. She is a licensed psychotherapist and the cofounder of the Imagin-NATION Academy, offering a pathway to wisdom and healing using the ancient tools and practices of earth-based indigenous cultures.

Anne taught me an exercise that worked for her when she quit smoking. It’s a way to get into agreement with any addiction—social media, drugs, alcohol, complaining…anything—ultimately accepting that you’re not in control.

Tips to Keep You on Your Path to Happiness

renee-singh-tips-to-keep-you-on-your-path-to-happiness
As we are well on our way into the New Year, our new hopes and aspirations seem firmly entrenched within our system and we seem to be on our way to a new beginning or at least a face lift to our old selves. Each year there are many resolves we make and yet slowly, they all melt down to the common potpourri of whatever is our normal daily life. No matter how hard we try to remain steadfast in our daily resolves, the moving Sands of time make it all wither away.
 

To keep oneself duly on the path ,one needs resilience and commitment.  This has to come from within. We constantly need to work on ourselves to keep us there on our committed path towards health and happiness. I am trying to facilitate my readers to stay on the path by using a few tips I have gathered over the years through intense research. Of course we all desire to wish it all away but we need to work our way to happiness.


Wishful Thinking
 
Most of us wish we could wave a magic wand and wish all our stressors away. What a blissful feeling to live in joy and harmony by just wishful thinking.
 
But practical reality tells us that no matter how much we wish our thoughts away, they don't go. We need to create practical ways and means of dealing with them. We need to know how to turn our thoughts around so that we can use them to our advantage
 

Relaxing Space

Our foremost thing is to have a relaxed physical space. Create it at home if possible. Your own spot where your level of comfort is the highest. When you are here your mind and body just step into a relaxed mode.
 

A Warm Bath

You could turn your bathroom to a spa like environment.  Visualise it like a spa scenario.  A hot bath always de stresses you. So create your own space.
 

Choose from Your Own Happy Habits
 
We all have our comfort zone's over the years that kept us going on the happiness path.Pick up on a few things which kept you the happiest and put them into your mental framework, use those now in your daily functioning.
 

Short Power Naps
 
Whenever fatigue sets in just take that 10 minutes nap that refreshes you and rejuvenate's your system. This is your "on your marks get set go" strategy.

Putting the person back in personalized nutrition

Marti-Wolfson-Putting-the-personal-back

Joan, a 60 year old woman and cancer survivor originally came to me looking for help with weight loss. As you'll read in her account of our time together, we dove into much more than what she was eating.

 

GATHERING THE STORY

In our initial session I listened to Joan's story and learned that underneath her weight woes, there were much deeper issues to tap into.   My priority with whomever is in front of me is to consider the person's whole story, from birth to present day. We spend time looking at the Wheel of Health in order to see what area of living needs the most attention. Then we create a health plan together, rather than place a cookie cutter agenda upon the client. Oftentimes one sees a healthcare provider and the practitioner is focused on the immediate situation, disregarding the lifetime of events that make up who we are as a whole being. Lifestyle Medicine peels back the layers of who we are in order to feed the body vital nutrients that support our physical, mental, and psycho spiritual selves. 

 

THE CALM™ DIFFERENCE

My CALM™ program is an approach in educating and experiencing.  The education is about understanding the relationship between the body and inputs from the environment, diet, stress, lifestyle, etc. The experiencing is using various tools (food, movement, mindfulness, communication, affirmations, supplements, oils) to move out of disease and sense greater health from the inside out.  I learned Joan is a skilled cook, has an awareness of healthful ingredients, and made clear she did not want to give up the pleasure of food. We created a plan together that included more attention to meal planning, food journaling, exercises in awareness of behavior, and supplementation.  Here, she describes what worked from our sessions together.
